Wychavon Festival of Brass 2021 – 3rd Place

Published by Hawk Green Band on

On Saturday 30th October 2021 we took the coach to De Montford School in Evesham to compete at the Wychavon Festival of Brass. The volunteers did an incredible job of making sure the event ran smoothly.

We started our program with The Heat is On before Pete on Solo Trombone gave a fabulous rendition of Georgia on My Mind. We then stepped up the tempo where Pete on Trombone, Rachel on Repiano Cornet and Sam on Soprano showed off their talents in Puttin’ on the Ritz. We slowed things down and concluded with a lovely arrangement of I’ll Walk with God.

Things nearly didn’t go to plan as we were affected by Covid in the run up to the contest but our Bandmaster never stopped working and found deps to help us out right up to the week before! We were happy with our performance and so was the adjudicator who placed us 3rd! We were also awarded the Dave Hodgetts Memorial Trophy. This was went to Pete Williams on Trombone for his outstanding contribution to his band!

Well Done Pete and Band!
